Celebrate National Day in a truly Singaporean way: by eating! There’s nothing that brings the country together like our unique food, so loosen your belt and showcase your Singaporean appetite with these meals that capture what we love most about Singapore.
Have a bit of fun this National Day and treat yourself to some tipples and bar bites at Urbana Rooftop Bar. Boasting fine wines, signature cocktails, and a beautiful view that stretches all the way to Marina Bay, it’s a great place for a patriotic party. Your favourite hawker center supper of satay and Milo gets a boozy, classy upgrade here too!
The signature Pork and Pineapple Satay is everything we look for in a satay and more. Chunks of tender, juicy pork melt satisfyingly away from the stick, carrying hints of smoky char, while the pineapple provides bursts of sweetness. It also goes perfectly with the Chocoloco, a smooth, creamy, chocolatey cocktail. Made with Baileys, chocolate syrup, and vodka then topped with Milo powder, it’s inspired by none other than our childhood favourite Milo Dinosaur.
Well, maybe satay and cocktails aren’t quite enough for a properly filling dinner. In that case, you can always count on Sky22, with its menu of Singaporean foods made indulgent with premium ingredients, for a hearty meal of local favourites. It’s in the same building as Urbana Rooftop Bar too, so you can always head upstairs for post-dinner drinks and a spot of supper!
Make sure you’re prepared for some heat, because both their signature items pack quite a punch! Slurp up a generous bowl of Tiger Prawn Laksa Lemak, topped with quail eggs, fishcakes, and huge, sweet tiger prawns. The coconut gravy is a masterpiece, balancing the spiciness with its creamy texture and fragrance. And of course, the Chilli Crab Pizza, with generous chunks of crab and lots of chilli, is far too tempting to resist.
Once you have kids, National Day celebrations become a family affair. Still, that doesn’t mean staying home and watching Channel 5 broadcasts of the parade. Head down to Caffe Fernet for their National Day menu, featuring delicious family-style Italian eats sporting local touches.
The Atlantic Lobster & Prawn Ravioli, with its laksa leaf and chilli, looks a lot like an Italian rendition of laksa. As for meats, there’s a Beef Short Rib Rendang to quell those curry cravings. End your dinner with an array of local-inspired sweets, while the magnificent fireworks colour the night sky.

Imagine yourself in a luxurious dining room, right by a window enjoying an unobstructed view of Fullerton Bay and the fireworks, savouring gourmet Italian foods infused with Singaporean flavours. That’s exactly what you’ll get at Forlino, an Italian fine-dining restaurant with a local-inspired National Day menu to die for.
Their set menu includes creative delights like a Nasi Lemak Arancino with Sambal Mayo for appetisers. Feast on irresistible mains such as Raviolini in Brodo – essentially, laksa ravioli – and the Cacciucco al Curry, a flavourful Italian take on curry fish head. Finally, dessert comes in the form of Kaya Toast, featuring kaya-flavoured panna cotta, toasted brioche, and pandan cream. Are you drooling yet? We sure are!
Love our iconic Chilli Crab, but just can’t get the hang of digging the meat out of the shell? The solution to your problem lies in Dian Xiao Er. Though this restaurant chain is famous for its crackling roast duck, they’re offering a National Day Special that takes the mess and hassle out of your favourite seafood.
Enter the Chilli Soft Shell Crab! A fried soft shell crab drenched in a fragrant chilli crab sauce and served with fluffy mantou, it’s an innovative (and much more convenient) version of the Chilli Crab. Tuck in and enjoy without having to struggle with the hard shell or clean your hands after! You’ll get an addictive crunch from the soft shell crab too!

Here’s your chance to show how much you love Singapore by eating our flag! Well, it’s not really our flag – just a half-and-half pizza that looks like the flag. Bella Pizza, a lively pizzeria on the shores of the Singapore River, is just what you need to dye your dinner a patriotic red and white.
The red half is a tangy, punchy tomato base pizza, with salami, fresh tomatoes, and ricotta on top. In contrast, the white half is creamier and more subtle, featuring a cheese sauce with egg, mascarpone, and black truffle.
